Quand est-ce qu'on va voir les abeilles ?

He asks

And I promise : soon

After we have found the lake

And we drive

Through trees coloured and green

« Rocks » he cries and

We take pictures

Of tractors and harvesters

And admire the cows

He loves the bees and

Rings the bell at the door –

I have to lift him –

His souvenirs are two little rocks

But I do not know where they are now.

We have a late lunch of

Yoghurt, potatoes and bananas

By the river

Later, we buy applejuice at the dep

In Labelle

We sing songs, and twice,

Make a pit stop by the side of the road !

What a day to remember –

You're only three right now, so

Just in case,

I took some pictures
